Eat these and Lose Weight!


Most of them skip food so as to lose weight. But did you know that some foods can help you in dropping some pounds? Yes!! It is indeed possible. “Diet foods” are generally pictured as bland steamed entrees and endless celery sticks. However, these foods need not necessarily be boring. Here, you can find delicious foods which will please your taste buds and help you reduce weight.
1. Avocados


Avocado toast is an excellent way to lose weight! Avocados are loaded with tonnes of fibre, which is a slow-digesting carb that holds your blood sugar levels uniform and aids fight off cravings. They also have healthy monounsaturated fatty acids, or the MUFAs, which have been noted in animal studies to enhance fat loss.
Begin your day with a slice of sprouted grain bread covered with avocado, sriracha and a pinch of unrefined sea salt. Or you can also blend avocado with cacao powder, dark chocolate, almond milk and agave for an avocado “pudding.”

2. Lentils


Lentils are one of the best, and cheapest, foods to support you to reduce weight. It contains tonnes of protein and fibre which comes to around 15 grammes of each per serving. It will make you feel full and satisfied between meals and thus cut off the snacking in between meals.
You can season lentil pilaf with lemon juice and fresh basil to get a bright flavour or even season them with Indian spices.

3. Turkey Breast


Adding skinless turkey breast to the diet is good for losing pounds since it is higher in protein than chicken breast. Hence it gives you a weight loss benefit since you tend to burn up to 10 times more calories, cutting down protein during digestion than other nutrients.
You need to skip the sodium-laden deli turkey since it will make you bloat. As an alternative, you can roast your own turkey breast and then slice thin with a sharp knife.

4. Chia Seeds


Chia seeds are good for weight loss, due to the rich fibre and calcium content. When you increase your calcium intake, it will fend off belly fat. One of the studies observed that women who don’t get sufficient calcium are more prone to pack on extra pounds.
Spatter some chia over your avocado toast and stir it into oatmeal or smoothies or you can use it to make pleasantly spiced chia pudding.

5. Spinach


One cup of fresh spinach provides half the immune-boosting vitamin A you require for the day, all the bone-building vitamin K you need and also a gramme of filling fibre. And best of all, at seven calories per cup, you can enjoy all you can consume to stay full without breaking your diet.
Begin your lunch and dinner with spinach salad or perhaps slice spinach to add to your scrambled eggs and/or combine a few handfuls of spinach to your smoothies.

6. Cucumber


Cucumber is over 95% water by weight and hence it is great for weight loss. Water-rich foods have a moderate energy density, so you can consume a big share without getting too many calories.
Cucumber is low in calorie, and you can eat a generous portion without increasing weight and also keep you hydrated.
Blend cucumber with your favourite vegetables and herbs to make juice. Or mix zucchini, tomato, avocado and basil along with cucumber for a Mediterranean-inspired salad.

7. Almonds


Almonds are loaded with calories, and it will help you lose weight, reports a recent study. Almonds are hard to break down, so you burn more calories during digestion, and they’re rich in prebiotics to feed the healthy microbes in the gut.
You can opt for dry-roasted or even raw almonds and combine your own flavourings. A bit of cayenne and a pinch of lime juice, or a blend of cinnamon and ginger both increase your metabolism.

8. Kefir


Kefir has healthy protein and calcium benefits just like any other dairy products. In addition to that, it has tonnes of active probiotics to nourish the beneficial bacteria in your digestive tract. That’s necessary for weight loss, since an irregularity in your gut flora adds to obesity, and might even make it difficult for you to absorb nutrients.
Combine kefir to your smoothies for a tangy flavour, or even blend with it frozen acai and other berries.

9. Lemons


Lemons are a triple threat when it comes to diet foods. You’ll also get vitamin C, which keeps your skin shining and aids you fight off cold.
Squeeze some lemon juice with black pepper, chopped basil to flavour chicken turkey breasts or fish, combine slices of lemon to your water for more flavour or perhaps stir lemon into your green juice to cut “grassy” flavours.

10. Rooibos Tea


Rooibos tea, just like the green tea, is calorie-free and can help in slowing down weight gain caused by the stress.
The rooibos will assist you in remaining slim and stay hydrated.
